Spinning Filing Cabinets

Here are some spinning views of my current project, Synergism (in progress). Each cluster of office-related objects is designed to fit into a corner-space.

Spinning Staplers

It is a guerrilla street art project involving these small bronze 3D-printed objects.

Know of an office building that is so jam-packed with bureaucracy it could start leaking? Make it so with this subtle work…

A prototype for my 3D printed street-art series arrived! I have a couple changes to make based on this mock-up and feedback I received at CAA, but I’m getting closer…

Chief Resource Management Officer - Brushing

I’ll be giving a brief artist talk at 11am on Wed, Feb 4, 2015 at Daywood Gallery on the Alderson Broaddus University campus to accompany an exhibition of my recent video works. Stop by if you’re in the area!

Alderson Broaddus University
101 College Hill Drive
Philippi, WV 26416

Go to Burbick Hall – the tallest, largest building on campus, at the crest of the hill.  There is visitor parking in front of that building, and the gallery is to the left of the main Atrium as you enter over the footbridge.

Direct Object/Direct Action – ACRE TV

by Ellen Mueller on January 29, 2015, no comments

Practical Preparedness

My Practical Preparedness videos will be featured on ACRE TV‘s thematic programing, Direct Object/Direct Action, February 1- March 31, 2015.

ACRE TV is an artist-made livestreaming tele-vision network that features live and canned video, performances, durational works, and experimental broadcasts. ACRE TV was born out of the collaborative spirit of ACRE (Artists’ Cooperative Residency and Exhibitions).

From ACRE TV’s call for works: Television creates political bodies because it happens to many people at the same time: we stay informed of our stories, we gather in bars and homes to witness, we cast ballots for our idols all by TV. Directed by television’s innate ability to create publics, and the common usage of livestreaming in contemporary populous movements, ACRE TV will spend February and March 2015 broadcasting moving image work that explores broadcast art and it’s ability to function as a catalyst for moving bodies. Direct Object/Direct Action will air live, canned, episodic, durational and experimental broadcast works that position the stream as an instrument as opposed to a stage, as well as works that address the concept and histories of political direct actions. Leveraging the materiality of the devices and the parameters of livestreaming, examples of programming for Direct Object/Direct Action could include:

-Televised skill shares
-Live video dérives
-Documentaries for broadcast
-Free speech forums
-Audio/Visual compositions for synchronous cellphones
-Call-in shows
